He has no English ancestry from his maternal grandfather.
I didn’t add it, but perhaps it’s a reference to Sotillo’s maternal grandmother.
Well, since it isn’t documented, shouldn’t it be removed? His grandmother could have English ancestry, but Hill can be Finnish and Aina is often a Scandinavian name, not common among Anglo people.
